Something is so bloody wrong with this picture...

Rambo, a puppy who went for a frolic through the gate of his yard and did no harm, is on death row solely because of his shape.

A German Shepherd (Michael Bryant's family's breed), which according to the owner was usually muzzled but but wasn't, mauled a 2 year old child and is now at home waiting for investigation and a decision on whether charges will be laid.

What's wrong with this picture? A dog that has done nothing wrong is condemned to death solely because of his shape, while a dog that mauled a child (and reportedly has bitten before) is at home with his owner, not under a death sentence.

Why? Because the Ontario Liberals passed unfounded, unjust, vague and shoddy breed specific legislation that condemns a dog to death for its shape, and not its behaviour.

At least Rambo got a visit from his owner. Read about it in the Mississauga News and the Random Access blog.

Munchie was killed while his owners thought they had time to appeal his death sentence, while his lookalike Huckleberry was rescued in an effort that involved police and animal services.

The Ontario Liberals made this province into a foul joke for responsible, thinking dog owners.

Contribute to the legal challenge of Ontario's unfounded, unjust, vague and shoddy breed specific legislation.
